Representing underground exploration across Wales, The Forest of Dean and The Marches

The Council is the national association for caving in Wales, the Forest of Dean and the Marches for individual cavers, caving clubs and similar organisations. It represents regional and wider caving interests within the United Kingdom through the British Caving Association whilst maintaining its position as an independent body. The Council is recognized and supported by Sport Wales as the representative body for caving in Wales. The Council also represents mine explorers and mine history organisations. Many cavers share an interest in heritage mines and the industrial archaeology of Wales, and caving is often another interest of mine explorers. Geology takes no account of national borders. So the Council’s area covers parts of England that border on Wales where the rocks found on both sides of the border are effectively parts of the same structural group.
